THE /v.R.O. SPRING MEETING.— A I SWEEP ON THE CUP. Tho great Viotorian racing carnival is per haps one of the most remarkable events of its kind in either the' old world or tho new. In ferior in point of numbors to its greatest rival, the Epsom Derby, it is superior |to it if we - look into the conditions under whioh each of ?'' them are hold. It is -estimated that -500,000 people visit tho course i that /has 'soonv tho ' ? triumphs of Bend ''Or, Ormonde or Donovan; but then this immense ' attendance is drawn ''from a country that has a population of ?37,000,000, and this is without counting the throng of visitors that cross over from tho. continent and tho United Statoa, Qn the other hand, the population of 'Australia is about 3,500,000, and yet out of this number over 100,000 go to see tho great inter colonial handicap.

NEW ZEALAND, j '$ ', [From Ouk ConnKai'ONDKNT. I Dunkdin. — All ?musical enterprisers subordi nated to the .forthcoming exhibition', . of which musical entertainments are to form an integral part, in emulation of the Melbourne Exhibition. Although the colony has not been able to sub sidise the services of Mr. Cowen oil any other musician of equal reputation as conductor, it is hoped that the result of the musical eutertnin- ' ment will be found satisfactory. An orchestra of respectable proportions lias been' assembled, together with a chorus consisting of the majority of the amateurs of Duriediu, under the con duotorship of Mr. Arthur!

THE MELBOURNE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889
THE MELBOURNE STAGE. ? Contrary to general expectation, Ibsen's drama, ontitled A Doll's. House, proved an utter Jidneo for Messrs; Williamson, Garner nnd'Mus grove. Tho fault lay not with tho manage ment nor with the' leading lady, Miss Achuroh, nor tho general company, but rather in the fact that the piece was not in accord with the tastes of Melbourne 'playgoers. * It : had to bo with drawn after a fortnight's very indifferent run, and was replaced by the New Magdalen, in which Miss Achuroh scored a legitimate triumph. Mr. Oharrington, who accompanies this highly talented lady, is by no means a sucoess. His style is fiat and uninteresting. This was more especially demonstrated in Pygmalion and Gala tea, placed upon the stage at the Princess's as a last resource. -The result, could not bo con sidered as altogether satisfactory. . Atthe con clusion of the Achurch-Charrington season at tho Princess's, the Littlo Lord Fauntleroy Com pany were engagod, and have boon doing moderate bus...
MUSIC REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889
||j MUSIC REVIEW ? . .... Tho following music has been received from Messrs. Glen and Co. to review. '.V '' ? The Vesper Horn.^-Song. ? Written and com posed by 'Sidney Beresford.' This is a semi nautical strain, with a chorale for a refrain. Tho latter indeed is intended for a chorus or organ obbligato, and is nothing moro than 'Gentle; Jesus, meek and mild.' To this a melody lias been added, which, where it is inde pendent, is of good effect; but .where it proceeds in octavesvwith the bass' is by no means to be commended! It is unfortunate that- the com poser should not throughout have kept the solo, melody distinct from the voice parts of hid chorus. | -; I ' ,: ?? ?.-. '''?'.????

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889
EVENTS OF THE MONTH. VICTORIA. The orchestral ooncerts have continued during the past month to be given regularly twice a week, though at one time it was feared that one, ?*if''ir6t''inbre^would''Iiiivent6^bV'bihi(ted;''^TUiH'waB^ owing to the action of tho City Counuilin letting the Town Hall for the evening set apart for the orchestral concert, merely becauso they could obtain a higher price for it than that agreed upon with the orchestral committee ; aud to a similar proceeding on the part of the Exhibition Commissioners, who leased the Exhibition Building to a troupe of acrobats. The only other hall near enough town for tho purpose was tho Hibernian Hall, but on application for its use tho committee wero informed that it had already been let for Thursday evening. The difficulty was got over by Professor Miller, who had seoured it for that date, kindly postponing his lcoturo to allow - of the concert being given, and several subsequent con certs took place in the same hall.

BEN TROVATO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889
BEN TROVATO. Tho uses to which musio can be put aro apparently endless. No one would have imagined that its aid could bo required in cookery, but we learn that a Prussian composer has produced what ho terms an 'Egg Polka. ' Its purposo is eminently practical, as may. be. gathered from the following 'directions for use,' printed on tho back of eaoh copy : 'Let the polka be placed, open at tho firxt page, upon the pianoforte desk. Then drop the egg into a pipkin half full of boiling water. Set the pipkin on the fire. Then play tho polka through in strict time, as per metronome indication. On completing its last bar tho egg will be cooked to a turn — that is, its yolk will bo fluent, and its white about as yielding to the touch as a ripo plum. Those who wish thoir eggs hard sot will play the polka andante maestoso. Tho contrary offeot will bo produced by an allegro vivaco rondering of the composition.'
APHORISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889
APHORISMS. Whatever tho relations of musio, it will never cease to bo the noblest and purest of arts. It is the nature of musio to bring beforo us, with absolute truth and reality, what othor arts only imply.
